The campsites are spacious with a picnic table and fire ring at each location. Bathrooms are a short walk from every site. The town of Elkmont is an easy walk from the camping area. You can reserve campsites online.
We were there the weekend after Labor Day and the campground was surprisingly quiet! By Tuesday when we left, it was less than half full. The location is ideal since it's the closest park campground to Gatlinburg. The sites are fairly close together but not...More
It was our first time in Smokies, first time in Elkmont. The campground is peaceful and beautiful with very clean bathrooms. No showers, but you can take a bath in the river :) Sites by the river are THE BEST! Falling asleep to the sound...More

River front sites are nice. We only tent camp. Personally i would go for the sites across river as they r a little quieter(sides with latter part of alphabet). Another great site we found was cosby campground. Other site of part from elkmont and u can almost always find a site available as most u cant reserve. If u want to reserve one get one on the very backside. Several good trials to hike out from. Smokemont isnt one of my favorites but that is just personal. Never tried cades cove camp but they seem close together for me. Ekmont is best w cosby close second—try both and explore if u have the time. So many nice places to hike around the smokies.
